Yemen on verge of famine as millions cannot access aid

Aid groups are struggling to reach millions of Yemenis facing famine.

by

    About one million people in northern Yemen are living in makeshift camps on the verge of famine.

    They're in a Houthi-controlled area that the Saudi-Emirati coalition has been attacking and that's making it difficult for aid to reach camps. Without a ceasefire and end to the attacks, aid organisations cannot bring in the amount of food necessary for the displaced Yemenis to survive the conflict.

    Al Jazeera's Bernard Smith reports from neighbouring Djibouti.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
